Windows 7: Windows explorer stopped detecting SD Card - Windows 7.

Windows explorer stopped detecting SD Card - Windows 7.

Up until recently Windows explorer automatically detected an sd card when inserted in the card reader. However now it won't detect it. It does autmatically detect a USB drive inserted into the usb slot on the same hardware. I have ruled out a hardware issue by booting from other windows 7 drives on my machine and both times the sd card is detected by Windows explorer. I have tried checking the driver for the flash reader on the problematic hard drive and it says it is working properly. Is there a fix for this without reinstalling windows 7?

Hello and welcome tinman mate some system specs please so hard to work with something not knowing what one is dealing with.

Now just as a by the by I had a similar issue a while ago with my USB and card ports not working and it turned out to be an issue with the Samsung Magician because I run SSD's uninstalling the Samsung software cured it straight away so are you running it or other software that maybe interfering with the SD card operation?
